Lesson Planning Essentials - TEFL Blog


Wed, 29 Apr 2020 Elizaveta Pachina Teaching Ideas Lesson Planning Essentials In my experience and the experience of my teacher colleagues, lesson planning has never been among the most interesting or engaging activities. The reasons are always different: some believe that lesson planning is not effective because a teacher cannot predict the direction of the lesson. Others think that it is a complete waste of time because the process of planning a lesson may seem boring and time-consuming. As a beginner teacher, I had a false belief that lesson planning is not important for an ESL teacher, especially if the group of students has a high level of English. However, after teaching for a longer period, I have realized that only with a certain amount of planning can an ESL lesson be not...  [Read more]

How to Use Learners’ Internal Motivation - TEFL Blog


Thu, 02 May 2019 Elizaveta Pachina Alumni Experiences How to Use Learners’ Internal Motivation Motivating students is always a challenge and can, in fact, be one of the most difficult parts of education. There are countless ways to either encourage or intimidate a student into completing their work or participating in class but these external motivators have a limited effect. Encouragement and praise may only motivate a student while they are seated in the classroom. A teacher expressing disappointment on an uncompleted assignment may only encourage the student to avoid the subject or course work altogether. One of the best ways I have found for motivating students is to find a student's internal motivation. Table of Contents Finding Students' Future Goals Setting Up The...  [Read more]

Why Preparing a Plan is Compulsory for New Teachers - TEFL Blog


Thu, 23 May 2019 Elizaveta Pachina Teaching Ideas Why Preparing a Plan is Compulsory for New Teachers Lesson planning is one of the most important elements of successful teaching in the ESL (English as Second Language) classroom and every TEFL (Teaching English as Foreign Language) lesson needs a plan, particularly so in the case of the less experienced teacher starting their career in a foreign country. The often-cited argument that over planning can create a less fluent atmosphere in the classroom does hold some truth but just as the artist is tutored not to attempt abstract art until first mastering the art of realism, the teacher likewise is best placed not to address a class unprepared until first mastering the art of pre-planning.

Wed, 15 May 2019 Elizaveta Pachina Teaching Ideas Designing a Plan for a Preschool ESL Class Although I have spent many years as an English tutor and teacher of children, I always relied on my own innate skill and have never been formally trained.
